7 movies to watch to feel motivated
It isn’t weird that on the weekend, you train your brain to stop thinking about work. In fact, that is actually a good thing that everyone should do, in order to come clean and stay focused the rest of the week. However, it is well known that inspiration comes in the less expected times, especially when you are resting and relaxed. That’s because the brain is not on the defense, so it lets itself keep valuable information. So it is really important to choose wisely what you read, hear, and watch. And movies are a huge part of it! So here is a list of the best motivational movies you can see to feel that spark every time.
